“We dream to give ourselves hope. To stop dreaming – well, that’s like saying you can never change your fate.” Amy Tan
The Moon continues its passage through “futuristic“ Sagittarius, a hopeful lunar placement that encourages us to “reach for the stars.” Eleanor Roosevelt (born with a Sagittarius Ascendant) once said that, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Too, it may be a perfect time to rummage through the cherished treasure chest of our dreams, and perhaps re-asses our life, in general now – and what we aspire for in 2014. Not only are we at the end of another calendar year; astrologically, we also have enterprising Mars squaring transforming Pluto today (8:22 pm EST), an aspect often described as “game-shifting” by astrologers. This more intense influence, even though it can sometimes be disruptive in nature, is often regarded to be very good for fostering self-renewal efforts, as it tends to re-align us with our heart’s burning passions and desires. Mars-Pluto is also often a factor with our employing herculean efforts to achieve our goals. (Today’s Mars-Pluto aspect also, of course, activates the longer term Uranus-Pluto square.)
Mars-Pluto can also help shed light on what is broken or no longer working in our lives; what possibly might be able to be salvaged or repaired; and what likely should be pitched or tossed aside. Usually, too, before we can successfully start anew, we have to be willing to let go of the past; let go of attachment.
On the shadow side, Mars square Pluto is linked with obsessive or extreme behavior, fanaticism. power struggles, aggressive outbursts, greed, and manipulation.
Too, on a more positive note, writer Ericka Huggins insightfully reminds us that love can be an expression of power (Pluto). “We can use it to transform our world.”
How would you describe the “power of love?”
